Dutch-born photographer Marsel van Oosten has won numerous awards for his nature photos including Nature Photographer of the Year in the International Photography Awards, First Prize in the European Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition and Third Prize in the BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year Awards. If you’re short on time, you must check out Brave Elephant, which is one of those once-in-a-lifetime photos. It features a lone elephant walking towards the edge of Victoria Falls. Out of all the animals he shoots, van Oosten states that bears are one of his favorite subjects. “They’re pretty, they’re very photogenic, and their behavior is fascinating,” he explains.
